I'm new to this forum and i'm not very sure with how i'm suppose to state my problems, thus if it's written wrong please tell me so.

I'm currently doing a motion lab report for my physics class and we have to analyse the motion of a pendulum.

The material used for the lab are: Aparatus, string, 100g bob, and stopwatch (to measure time it takes to complete 30 cycles).

I'm asked to find the relationship between the length and the frequency of the simple pendulum.

i have finhsed mostly everything that's asked for in the lab but for the conclusion i'm asked to add the percent error, but my problem is what is a theoretical value?

2. Relevant equations

This is the percent Error Formula:

(|theoretical value - experimental value|/theoretical vaule) x 100%

I've asked my teacher what is a theoretical value but she told me to look it up.

3. The attempt at a solution

i've tried googling for the theoretical value and one site has stated that the theoretical value is 9.80m/s^{2}. It too is a lab report about the motion of a simple pendulum but i'm not quite sure if the value is correct.
